Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 25, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 25,1913 if i;" � All Elements of Scandal in Indian Reserve Case � ftEOING SOLDIEfVS DOING 5TRIKL OUTYL 1 BUFFALO STRIKE RIOTS i Scenes in connection with the stril'n initiative,with i^e j It wag quite evident that the B. C. ; government was not alone in the marlcet for the lands. Mr. Olivet said that the responsibility lay with the Dominion gove;rnment and to them they must look tor protection of the Indians- If there was to be a change in the principle.guilding the government it was right and proper that the country should know. Mr. Oliver said there had been a | very similar case in Victoria, where there was a reserve withiii the limits of the city. The Indians are given parts nf the new reserve. He him-! self was partly responsible and tlie * plan of paying them cash had . not proved satisfactory. It had been demoralizing. Mr. Oliver sa'd the government was not keeping faith with the Indians or the Iniperial government, when it allowed this transac-' tion to go through wherohy the property goes to the provincial government for less than a quarter of a million dollars. Apparently the government had allowed the B. C. authorities to deal with the sacred rights of the Indians as though it was an ordinary real estate speculatioii, iThere was another feature, as the B.' C.' government did not admit this; claim of ownership by-tlie Indians, but only the claim of occupation. / the late government had entieavored; to raisf? a case to take before the privy council but without success. He had brought this matter up because there was a principle at stake . and he wanted to urge the necessity of keep-' ing good faith with the Indians. Premier's Iteply Premier Borden, in reply, said that th.ey had heard a rather extraordin- The Closing Days of our Big Stock-Reducing Sale-We mean to make a grand finish by offer-inc- tbe niost attractive bargains of tbe season.

H. Whiteside, Liberal, a majority of bo. effort to protect these sacred rights of the red men as in the case of St. j Peters' reserve Mr. Borden asked ^who had informed the member for Kdmontop that the D. C. government was not ready to follow the ' same policy as in 1911. As far as he knew the attitude of the B. C. government had not altered. Mr. Oliver had referred to this matter as if it was a real estate sueculation. He realised that it was the intention of the B. C. government to ^fse this property solely tor the purppse bought. However, in the case pt St. Peter's reserve, it was nothing more or less than a speculation,', and the minister had refused an investigation. Mr. Borden said that the government realized the full necessity of protecting the Indians and they intended to do so. I "They had not yet been officially notified of the negotiations of the B. jC. government with the red men, but 'before the red men cohld be sanction- � ed it must be approved by thein and they would see it was their right and duty to see that the Indians were protected. He pointed out that an arrangement had just been completed for an inquiry into the question of the B. C. reserve. This matter would properly come under the scope of that commission and they would investigate it. He could assure the opposition that th? government' was clearly alive to its duty to protect the Indians and they would give the question consideration. ' I Opposition Leader Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that the premier's answer did not cover the case". He did not believe that a commission could propei;ly deal with the matter. It was only appointed to cover the dispute as to the rights to the Indians' land. Sir Wilfrid admitted that where the rcs:rve lay close to ii city it was desirable to remove it. The Indians were only an impediment to development, but their rights be protected. � It seemed to him that the Indians had received an alto.'.ether in'!dc:iuat3 amount tor tlie r^SErve. 13' er' th 11-5 might .he all right, hut Ihe question ought to be investigated before the surrender was (inully consummated. Bohi Uogers At the beginning of his speech Hon. Robert Rogers road ah'opinion prepared by the deputy Irtinistet'of justice to the effect that ihe tiuestion of the Indian rwerve came within the scope of the commission recently appointed to deal with Indian questions affecting the Dominion and the prov-: ihce of B. C. ' [] , I Ho was interrupted by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who stated that the point at issue was, but as to whether or not the payment to be made the Indians was inadequate. Continuing, Mr. Rogers said that the department of Indian affairs had not yet investigated the, matter and he was not prepared to reply on newspapers as to what was or what was not being done. He did not Iie-lieve that Hon. Mr. Bowser, the attorney-general, had made the statements attributed to him in the press. It was, he went on, probably by reason ol the arrangement with the late Dominion government that Mr. Bowser had dealt with the mat- . ter so Jar as he had. Mr. Rogers then read tflegrafns exchanged in 1910 between Sir Wilfrid Laurier ana . Sir Richard McBride, showing that Sir Wilfrid had stated that any ar-j rangement satisfactory to the In-I dians woUld be satisfactory to the Dominion The late government, Mr. Rogers said, apparently had confidence in Sir Richard McBride at that time, and so had the present government today. At the same time, the Indian department had not yet given the proposed surrender by the Indians consideration, and at all events, it was properly a matter for the Indian conimisston to pass upon. Ouelph Man Mr. Guthrie, of South Wellington, commended the course followed by Mr. Oliver in bringing the matter be-^ fore the house. So much of a questionable nature on the part of the government-had already been brought to light,this session, he said, was that notice should lie ^giveh to trfinsactions'such as that referred! to by Mr.. Oliver. Mr. Guthrie agreed ; with Sir Wil-' frid Laurier that the scope of the'ln^ jdian couimission is slniply .to inyos^ tigate the question of property rights as between the Dominion and the, province" and he went on to say that, ! according t.p newspaper reports Hon. Mr.'Bowser had pf^ered $il,eOO per Indian family for land in Vancouver. The attorney-general, Mr. Guthrie claimed, had gone far beyond his power when he told the Indians to take thus sum or elect to take' nothing except some land, in the / inner part of B.-C. Acting Minister "Hon. T. W. Crothers took the ground that Mr. Guthrie was not so much concerned with the welfare of the Indians as hie was with making a point against'the government. As for Sir Wilfrid Laurier's contention that the Indians had surrendered their interest in the reserve, Mr. . Crothers said that whatever interest the Indians had in April they still had as the'Dominion government had not given its consent to any surrender. ' . I Continuing, he drew attention to the difference which he claimed thote was between the stand of Sir Wilfrid ' in 1910 and. that gontlcman's stand at tlie present tiinp. in IfllO, he said, any agreement Hatlsfactory to the Indians, suited the p;rese!it opiro-i sition leader. the B. C. government would not pay the amount." Hdii. Mr., .Crothers declared that the interests of the Indians in the, Kitsijano. reserve were the same today as theyv;^verp'ion the first cf April or before. And the government, he said, -would see to it that theso Indians Avere protected.
